A super salty spring in the Canadian Arctic provides insights key to detecting life on a distant ocean world.
A new algorithm suggests that only a small fraction of meteorites present on the White Continent’s surface have been recovered to date.
Laboratory experiments re-create the thin, icy pedestals that support some rocks in nature, revealing that sublimation plays a key role in the formation of these rare and beautiful structures.
As river ice cover decreases, the physical and biological changes to river ecosystems vary with the watershed characteristics and river size.
Anyone seeing photographs of glacier and ice sheets from above clearly sees that they flow; recent laboratory tests on ice further reveal the conditions that control just how fast this happens.
Scientists are still seeking an explanation for the Mid-Pleistocene Transition when ice ages became longer in duration and exploring what it may mean for future climate change.
In our July issue, Eos looks at the collection, study, and storage of cores—from sediment drilled up from the age of the dinosaurs to tree rings as big as a house.
Spaceborne lidar shows that more ice than expected is leaving the tropical tropopause layer in the atmosphere.
Educators at ice core labs teach students hands-on lessons about climate change.
The excrement delivers nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen, kick-starting islands of vegetation at the edge of the cryosphere.
